Yes, it’s one more week closer. I can certainly relate to Gypsy, boxes, boxes, everywhere boxes. At least she will be done a lot sooner than me.
I have been really busy going through a lot of STUFF. I am trying to get some things together for a yard sale next Saturday. My neighbor is having one then, so I will make a poster of some sort with a list of the things (and prices) that are for sale and my address and phone number.
Hopefully I will increase the RV fund. Last Saturday I sold the solar patio light and the small fountain. I brought it out to Lupe (she is a coworker) who lives in south Sacramento. We had lunch and visited for while. She has a nice home with a pool. She also has converted parts of her home into a studio and a one bedroom apartment that she rents out. She will make good use of them.
Then on Saturday I gave the screened canopy to my neighbor, It was up all winter and the high winds did a bit of damage. The same winds ruined hers too. She said that she could fix mine so I just gave it to her. I also have a lot of concrete blocks and patio wall building blocks and pavers and another small pond that I will try to sell too.
If I can sell some things then and the have an “estate sale” just before I move. Every thing that I plan on taking is making it’s way into my bedroom. I have also started putting things into boxes that will go into the fiver basement that I will take my daughters in AZ. There’s also a box for Ted, but he will take his next weekend when he will be here for Easter. I wonder if I can sell my Tuff Shed too.
A lot of things are beginning to happen. Hopefully I will be in fifth wheel by June or July. I will have to find a park to put it and then get a tow truck later. My plans are to continue working so that I can build up my saving a bit. I will also be able to figure out my usage of propane and electricity and how long I will have to go before I have to dump the black and grey water before I am actually on the road, generally learn how to live in an RV. It will also give me time to set up workamping situations for when I actually retire. While going through some papers I found my old resumes. That will help when I start looking for work once I actually retire. Does anyone have any ideas as to where to begin looking in the Phoenix area or central Texas area?
One of first places that I will probably go will be Arizona where two of my daughters live and the on to Texas where another daughter and my sister live. There are a lot of other places that I would like to go but they can wait.
The Adventure begins!
